His early, advises Ouspensky, took place in an atmosphere of tales of fairy legends and traditions. To her around, the miraculous had been a real event.

New Literary Cult Phenomenon

Do we like both the superhero, television series and comic books? Increasingly the TV series based on two fantastic sub-genres of literature: comics and fairy tales, which next season will BREW in the American series. Some of the most outstanding DVD series are Powers, Once Upon a Time and Grimm. Powers adapts comics of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming. The other two series are based on folk tales of Perrault, Andersen and the Grimm. The same happens with tales of fairies, Red Riding Hood and snow white, which reappear with new airs.

Another of the season’s most successful series has been The Walking Dead (the year 2010 TV series), based on the comic by Robert Kirkman. ABC also is preparing a television version of the Incredible Hulk, with Guillermo de el Toro, and thinks adapting to film the story of Captain America. The editorial Errata Naturae has some titles that seek to clarify the new phenomenon of the series, as the case with the book is Teleshakespeare. Supply is infinite, both in books and eBooks and the number of series grows more and more, as well as their followers. Think of the Sopranos, The Wire, Mad Men and Dexter, six feet under ground, Galactica: battle star, and so on. Teleshakespeare is intended to create a kind of guide of the series most prominent in recent years, some well known and others, no doubt, still undiscovered, providing a collection of short essays, as well as a first reflection on this new phenomenon, visual and narrative.
